August America’s deadliestmonth in long Afghan war
By DEB RIECHMANNThe Associated Press
KABUL, Afghanistan —August has become the deadli-est month yet for U.S. forcesin the nearly 10-year-old warin Afghanistan, increasingpressure on the Obama admin-istration to bring troops homesooner rather than later.The 66 U.S. service mem-bers killed this month eclips-es the previous record of 65killed in July 2010, accordingto an Associated Press tally.Nearly half the August deathsoccurred when insurgents shotdown a Chinook helicopterAug. 6, killing 30 Americantroops, mostly elite NavySEALs.Violence is being reportedacross Afghanistan despitethe U.S.-led coalition’s driveto rout insurgents from theirstrongholds in the south.Though American militaryofficials predicted high casual-ties this summer as the Talibantry to come back after recentoffensives, the grim mile-stone increases pressure on theObama administration to with-draw U.S. forces quickly.The military has begun toimplement President BarackObama’s order to withdrawthe 33,000 extra troops hedispatched to the war. Heordered 10,000 out this yearand another 23,000 withdrawnby the summer of 2012, leav-ing about 68,000 U.S. troopson the ground. Although majorcombat units are not expectedto start leaving until late fall,two National Guard regimentscomprising about 1,000 sol-diers started going home lastmonth.Afghan President HamidKarzai has set the end of 2014as the target date for Afghanpolice and soldiers to take thelead in protecting and defend-ing the country, leaving inter-national combat forces to gohome or take on more supportroles.In a speech in Minnesotaon Tuesday, Obama honoredall the troops who have beenkilled in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Putnam has case of West Nile Virus; two reported this year
Putnam County has one of the first human West Nile Viruscases in the state of Ohio thisyear.The case is a 14-year-oldmale who is recovering at home.The other case in Ohio was iden-tified in Cuyahoga County.Putnam County had casesof West Nile Virus last year aswell, so it is important to takepreventive measures during thismosquito season.West Nile Virus is transmit-ted by the bite of a mosquito.Symptoms include fever, head-ache, confusion, nausea, seizures,altered nerve reactions, abnormalmovements and coma. The dis-ease ranges from mild to severe.The health departmentwould like to remind all resi-dents of the importance of protecting yourself againstmosquitoes. To avoid pos-sible infection from mosqui-to bites: If you are outdoorsbetween dusk and dawn whenmosquitoes are most active,be sure to wear long pants, along-sleeved shirt, shoes andsocks. Light colors are leastattractive to mosquitoes. Useinsect repellent that containsDEET or picaridin and followthe label directions. To elimi-nate mosquito breeding sitesnear your home: Remove alldiscarded tires and other water-holding containers, such as tincans and unused flower pots,from your property. Eliminatestanding water from your prop-erty. Make sure all roof guttersare clean and properly drain-ing. Clean and chlorinate pools,outdoor saunas and hot tubs.Keep them empty when not inuse and drain water from poolcovers. Change water in birdbaths weekly.

NEWFANE, Vt. — Asemergency airlift operationsbrought ready-to-eat mealsand water to Vermont resi-dents left isolated and desper-ate, states along the EasternSeaboard continued to bebattered by the after effectsof Irene, the destructive hur-ricane turned tropical storm.Dangerously damagedinfrastructure, 2.5 millionpeople without power andthousands of water-loggedhomes and businesses contin-ued to overshadow the livesof residents and officials fromNorth Carolina through NewEngland, where the storm hasbeen blamed for at least 44deaths in 13 states.Raging floodwaters contin-ued to ravage parts of north-ern New Jersey this morning,even after the state’s rain-swollen rivers crested andslowly receded.The Passaic River crest-ed Tuesday night, causingextensive flooding and forc-ing a round of evacuationsand rescues in Paterson, thestate’s third-largest city.“Been in Paterson all mylife, I’m 62 years old, and I’venever seen anything like this,”said resident Gloria Moses asshe gathered with others atthe edge of what used to be anetwork of streets, now cov-ered by a lake.New Jersey Gov. ChrisChristie, after touring Wayne,through which the Passaicalso flows, said Tuesdaynight he saw “just extraordi-nary despair.”In Connecticut, theConnecticut River at Hartfordcrested Tuesday evening at24.8 feet, the highest levelsince 1987, according toNicole Belk, a hydrologistwith the National WeatherService, in Taunton, Mass.But she said levees helpedminimize flooding in river-side communities.She said the river couldstill rise slightly farther south,in Middletown, where somestreets and neighborhoodswere already experiencingminor flooding.Denise Ruzicka, directorof inland water resources forConnecticut’s Department of Energy and EnvironmentalProtection, said flood controldams and basins that NewEngland states installed after1955 floods helped preventa catastrophe in the lowerConnecticut River basin.She said all the rivers inthe state will be receding bythe end of the day.“The worst is over,” shesaid.Gov. Dannel P. Malloytoured hard-hit coastal areas— including a peninsula inFairfield that was lined withheavily damaged homes onLong Island Sound.Communities on the EastCoast continued recoveryefforts Tuesday, with peo-ple moving out of emer-gency shelters in westernMassachusetts, farmersin New York’s batteredSchoharie Valley assessingcrop losses and an insuranceagent in Pawtucket, R.I.,fielding dozens of calls fromcustomers making damageclaims.“The majority of the claimsare trees down,” said MelanieLoiselle-Mongeon. “Trees onhouses, on fences, on decks,on cars.”In Vermont, officialsfocused on providing basicnecessities to residents whoin many cases still have nopower, no telephone serviceand no way to get in or out of their towns.On Tuesday night, 11 towns— Cavendish, Granville,Hancock, Killington,Mendon, Marlboro, Pittsfield,Plymouth, Stockbridge,Strafford and Wardsboro —were cut off from the out-side.But by this morning, allbut one of the communities— Wardsboro— had beenreached by ground crews,emergency management offi-cials said.

NEW YORK (AP) — Noone would sniff at all the dol-lars Jerry Lewis raised formuscular dystrophy: a coupleof billion during his 45-yearreign as host of the MDATelethon.But what kind of TV did heoffer in exchange? The shortanswer: Jerry put on a showlike no other.Labor Day this year prom-ises to be bland by comparison,with the 85-year-old Lewisnow banished from the annualrite he built from scratch andmolded in his image.As if deflated by theabsence of its larger-than-lifehost, “The 46th Annual MDALabor Day Telethon” will fill just six hours (Sunday from 6p.m. to midnight in each timezone; check local listings forstation), rather than the gru-eling 21 1/2-hour endurancecontest that Lewis used tochurn through with his view-ers in tow.On this year’s broadcast(which, ironically, will no lon-ger be actually airing on LaborDay), a quartet of lightweightsare standing in for Jerry: NigelLythgoe (”So You Think YouCan Dance”), Nancy O’Dell(”Entertainment Tonight”),Alison Sweeney (”TheBiggest Loser”) and Jann Carl(billed as “an Emmy-winning journalist”).Celebrities will includeCeline Dion, Jennifer Lopez,Lady Antebellum, RichieSambora and Jordin Sparks.

PHOENIX — An 86-year-old Arizona man had just fin-ished trimming plants in hisbackyard when he fell face-first into his pruning shears,sending one of the handlesthrough his right eye socketand halfway into his head.Unsure what had happened,Leroy Luetscher reached upand felt the shears jutting fromhis face. He was covered inblood and in more pain thanhe’d ever felt in his life.“I didn’t know if my eye-ball was still there or what,”Luetscher told The AssociatedPress on Tuesday. “The painwas so bad that I guess Iwasn’t afraid to die.”Luetscher managed to puthis T-shirt over the wound tostanch the bleeding. He saidthe excruciating pain is whatkept him conscious and ableto walk to the laundry room of his house to beckon his long-time live-in girlfriend, whocalled 911.Luetscher, a Wisconsinnative who now lives in south-ern Arizona’s Green Valley,has made a remarkable recov-ery since the July 30 accident.He still has slight swelling inhis eyelids and minor doublevision, but is otherwise OK.Doctors who removed theshears and rebuilt a bone inLuetscher’s eye socket say itcould have been much worse.“He’s was very lucky thatit missed all vital structuresand we were basically able toput him back together,” Dr.Lynn Polonski said.After Luetscher’s girl-friend, Arpy Williams, called911, an ambulance rushed himto University Medical Centerin Tucson, where a team of surgeons took scans of hisbrain and came up with a planto treat him.They learned the shears’handle had gone 6 inches intoLuetscher’s head and was rest-ing against the carotid arteryin his neck.“It was a bit overwhelm-ing,” said Polonski, one of Luetscher’s surgeons. “It waswedged in there so tightly,you could not move it. It waspart of his face.”Polonski said the teammade incisions underneathhis right upper lip and hissinus wall, allowing them toloosen the handle of the prun-ing shears with their fingers.“Once we were able to loosenit up, it went fairly easily,”he said.

“As our mission transi-tions from combat to support,Afghans will take responsibil-ity for their own security andthe longest war in Americanhistory will come to a respon-sible end,” Obama said at theAmerican Legion’s nationalconvention in Minneapolis.“For our troops and militaryfamilies who have sacrificedso much, this means relief from an unrelenting decade of operations.”Aside from the 30Americans killed in theChinook crash southwest of Kabul, 23 died this month inKandahar and Helmand prov-inces in southern Afghanistan,the main focus of Afghan andU.S.-led coalition forces. Theremaining 13 were killed ineastern Afghanistan.Former U.S. ambassa-dor to Afghanistan, RonaldNeumann, said the recentspike in violence does nottell policymakers much on itsown, yet could still have theeffect of intensifying the senseof frustration about the warin Congress and elsewhere.Some U.S. lawmakers see thewar’s duration and cost as a“nuisance” in a time of tightU.S. budgets, he said. “Thatreinforces the negative,” hesaid.
